Soil microorganisms determine the sorption of radionuclides within organic soil systems.

Abstract

The potential of soil microorganisms to enhance the retention of (137)Cs and (85)Sr in organic systems was assessed in a series of experiments. A biologically active, 'mineral-free', organic material, produced under laboratory conditions from leaves, was used as the uptake matrix in all experiments to minimise potential interference from competing clay… (More)
